You can join the ‘Most Haunted’ team for a ghost hunt sleepover at Mains Castle this September

You might have heard of the nail-biting British television programme ‘Most Haunted’ by now?

The popular series, which has been on screen since 2002 and was originally aired on Living, live investigates suspected paranormal activity in a range of locations for up 24 hours.

For a taste of what the Most Haunted team (lead by host Yvette Fielding) get up to during their ghost hunting ventures, check out the clip below.

The brave bunch always manage to get themselves into terrifying yet unmissable spooky situations.

And guess what?!

The Most Haunted Experience and Live Feeds Team are taking part in a ghost hunting event at Dundee’s Mains Castle this September.

Mains Castle can be found in the north of the city in Caird Park, overlooking Dichty Valley and a small stream called Gelly Burn.

Believed to have been built in 1562, it is rich in history, and known to have paranormal activity lurking in its shadows.

Mains Castle is a 16th century castle on the outskirts of Dundee that was built on the site of an earlier castle. . The land on which the castle was built originally belonged to the Stewarts but passed to the Douglas Earls of Angus in the 14th century and it was they who built the original castle. In the 16th century the castle became the property of the Graham family who named it Fintry Castle or Mains of Fintry Castle after their Fintry Castle in Stirlingshire. . In 1562 David Graham rebuilt it with a tall stair tower on the north side of a courtyard made up of lower ranges. The tower was extended further in 1630 with the addition of corbelled-out caphouse. . In the mid-18th century the Grahams abandoned the castle in favour of Linlathen House but continued to own it until they sold it to David Erskine in the 19th century. By 1913 the castle was in ruins when the estate was bought by Sir James Caird and gifted to the then Dundee Corporation, the estate becoming Caird Park. . The castle was restored in the 1980s by Dundee District Council and is now owned by Dundee City Council but leased as a venue for weddings. . #MainsCastle #castle #ScottishCastles #CastlesOfScotland #loves_united_castle #manor_n_castle #castles_oftheworld #castles_world #замок #ChateauFort #burg #castillo #castello #城 #城堡 #history #InstaScotland #insta_scotland #IgersScots #ig_scotland #ScotSpirit #loves_scotland #OutAndAboutScotland #OSMaps #WonderlustScotland #ScottishRoamers #ScotLove #UnlimitedScotland #ScotlandShots #Scotland

Previous Mains guests have reported often hearing footsteps following them around the castle, and ghosts of children have allegedly been seen playing in the grounds.

The Mains Castle ghost hunt and sleepover goes in search of the afterlife in the Mains graveyard and castle itself.

Following the ghost hunt, guests are invited to sleep over afterwards… that is, if they’re brave enough.

Go on… we dare you.
